      federal debt is because of Social Security?  {The answer is zero (or something close to it)!}  Now if Social Security did not contribute to this monster debt, why should the people that have contributed to Social Security pay off the debt?  Shouldn't the defense contractors (and other corporate welfare recipients) that created/benefited from the majority of this debt be the ones to pay?

      One more: I have paid into SS & Medicare for nearly 40 years, but since I'm under 55 I should be OK with getting screwed?

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
